Stayed 4 nights....the aurora was unbelievable and made the trip memorable.
For this B&B there were no open easily accessible shared areas...living, kitchen, etc are all in one house and our room was in one of the other 3 homes the owner has. No coffee is provided in your room! For coffee you need to get dressed....to handle the -8 weather to get to the main house for breakfast and your first cup of coffee.
No ice trays in your mini fridge nor easy access to any.
There were workers remodeling a guest room below us during our stay and their radio started pretty early one morning....after we were up till 3AM for the aurora.
The TV did not work in the room....picture O.K....sound had too much static to enjoy it.
The room was clean but small. The previous reviews mentioning the obsessive attention to guests removing their shoes is correct....this would probably be less of a problem in the summer but with winter boots and no place to sit to remove them, it becomes a problem. If you want guests to remove their shoes you need to make it easy for them.
Because we were up late for the aurora we did not go to the breakfast ...it is only served at 7:30 and 8:30???? So we got a bagged breakfast.....which consisted of a bottle of water, store bought bagel w/cream cheese, small yo-plait yogurt and 1/2 banana? The banana was black....from being in the fridge.
I have stayed in a lot of B&B's and would have expected some fresh baked items, juice and a whole fruit. No real thought or effort went into the preparation of this. Don't get the bagged breakfast...go out for breakfast!
On the plus side...the room was warm and the cleaning lady friendly and helpful. I would check out another place next time.
